Lantern Bay Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Lantern Bay Park is a 76-acre grassy park on a 120-foot marine terrace above Dana Point Harbor. The park, situated in front of the Marriott Laguna Cliffs Resort, is noted for its spectacular views of the Dana Point Promontory; the offshore San Juan Rocks; Dana Harbor; the white sand beaches of Doheny, Capistrano, and San Clemente Beaches; and San Mateo Point at the county line.
The parkland has groves of Torrey pines, a grassy amphitheater, overlooks with benches, a paved walking path, and stairways connecting it to Heritage Park and Dana Point Harbor. This is a great area for observing the migrating gray whales."
